Hey Adon fans - I know we have the matchup’s thread, but to be honest, this one particular matchup is getting so much discussion between my mates and I, that I felt it would be better to collect our ideas here.
Firstly, I am aware that Gamerbee, our most sucessful Adon player, says this matchup is seriously in Yun’s favour - however, it’s not as simple as just abandoning the character, since most of us like many of the other matchups. What happens to those people who double blind pick, or are P1 in a P1->P2 pick tourney, and end up picking Adon only to find they’ve got Yun on the other side?
So, with all that said - time to look at the match. It is useful to note what’s been working against lesser Yuns, but I’d prefer to be working on learning what to do against the stronger Yuns - after all, they’re the one’s that are making me feel like I should launch the TE across the room.
I’m not a great Adon, so I will input what I can and test what others say, in an effort to work out what works.
Last night, I went in to training mode and had a go at working out what moves might stuff Yun’s rush-punch. I put the game in to Record, and recorded a HP Rush-punch, followed by jump back, followed by EX Rush-punch, followed by a large number of spammed cr.LP, then a jump back again. That’s not a good blockstring - but I’m more interested in the Rush-punches.
I found that the HP rush was beaten by sweep - but I could not seem to beat the EX. I could trade with it by pre-empting and hitting it with a JK, but I couldn’t work out what other moves would do anything to it. Blocking it is fair enough, and annecdotally, my friend has noticed a lot of Yuns are following up with throws - so with his Gouken, he’s crouch-teching and following that up.
So people - is anyone else up for trying to educate our masses on what options we have?
